Secondary 1 Bridging Courses

 

Time flies in Secondary 1!

With 9 Subjects on hand, school teachers are always rushing to cover the syllabus. New concepts and theories are introduced one after another; School teachers will wait for no one. Students struggle with challenging topics, not because they are not good but because they fail to grasp the challenging concepts QUICK enough. With the snowballing effect, they will have problems catching up and by then they would have to face their mid-year exams and year-end exams.

Hence, this December holiday is the best period for students – school work stress is at an all-year low and students are taking breaks to rest for the next year. Students must seize this period of the year to familiarize themselves with the challenging topics of the core subjects in Secondary School! It is important to master a significant level of proficiency in these new content, knowledge and gain a high level of confidence before school begins.
